Future stars come to Leamington

UP and coming pop stars will perform at a special event at the Assembly in Leamington this month.

Future Hits Live, taking place on Friday July 15, will feature six artists who are tipped to become the next stars of the mainstream music industry.

The line-up includes Wretch 32, Her Majesty & The Wolves, Soundgirl, Talay Riley, Six-D and Oh My!, all of whom feature prominently on the digital radio show which has organised the event - The Hits Radio.

Chris Younie, host of flagship show You Call The Hits, said: “Every day I speak to listeners on my show who request music that’s brand new and hasn’t hit the charts yet.

“They’re really ahead of the game and Future Hits Live feels like a brilliant way to reward them with the artists they love long before anyone else gets to see them.

“I’m really excited about seeing Kimberley Wyatt’s new group plus welcoming Oh My! for their very live first show.

“I think it’s a great opportunity for listeners in the Midlands to see some great new music and for us to meet them.”

The Leamington event will be the first in a series of gigs taking place up and down the country.

Fresh from his recent number 2 Unorthodox with chart-topping rapper Example, Wretch 32, has already played at this year’s Glastonbury and is also on the bill for Wireless Festival and Ibiza Rocks.

His debut single Traktor broke into the top five and an album will follow later this year.

Fomrer Pussycat Doll Kimberley Wyatt will return to pop with her new act Her Majesty and The Wolves.

With two UK number ones and 11 top 20 singles under her belt, this will be one of the most intimate shows Kimberley has played in years.
